So where's the snow?

Muddling through in Austria; God, life and a small black dog

Silage in October?

We’ve had a warm, wet summer, in fact a normal summer. As you know, I love to follow the farming season.

This year, there has been loads of grass, and some fields have been cut three times. I was surprised when farmers cut a couple of weeks ago.

Now we have a bit of sunshine, they’re at it again. Surely there can’t be much nutrition in it? Snow is forecast on Sunday, so there has been much scurrying around with bakers today.

How late do you cut in your part of the world?

I just love it when the cows come down from the hills at the end of September. These are some of my favourite shots from this year. Soon they will all be in the barns, stuffing their faces in the warm, and the valley will be empty of the cowbells. Shame!
